LIM Sketch for Dynamic Duos

I decided to use our sketch from "Less is More" once more, this time using the colours from Dynamic Duos this week which are Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.
I used a strip of Stampin' Up, Crumb Cake card which I stamped with a Blockhead coffee bean stamp along its length. I added a little colour to parts of the beans and inked the edges of the strip. The cups are from Stampin' Up stamped in Early Espresso and clear embossed. The border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment added from Unity Stamps.
We went to watch Hampshire play cricket today, but following our picnic lunch the heaven's opened and the rain was torrential, so we decided to call it a day and came home.  However I just managed to see our first medal of the Games won... a silver in the ladies cycling!
